Yeah, I like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor but I also have a pretty good sense of when things have crossed a line.

I'm all for things like that said in jest.  Plus, snarky comments in general are always fun.  This guy isn't nearly as funny as he thinks he is, though.  He's just an asshole.

This too...

"So, I'm not really down with hanging out on a group where people make threats"

Well, it's very much against the rules (on a few levels) so you really don't have to be down with it.

"Can we please do something about this?"

Here.

Usually actioned within 12-24 hours.

So, I'm not really down with hanging out on a group where people make threats--excuse me, "promises"--like "when I take over you will be punished". Can we please do something about this?

I'm rapidly approaching that point myself, Greg.

The most favorable interpretation I can make of Chris, at this point, is that he's playing a character. That's not even a very favorable one, though, since it's not a very entertaining character.

Smell that coffee….

"No, "Mr. Bean" is a made up character…"

Of course, you could always check "Linkedin" or "Who's Who" to be sure… That and $3.98 will get you a latté at Starbucks.

Who hasn't heard of Mr. Bean?
